Project Portfolio


In recent years, Arc has developed innovative and high profile projects which enable us to work outside previous boundaries, bringing to life partnerships which benefit and sustain us, and have enabled us to extend our reach.

Through these projects we are able to work with exceptional artists and arts organisations to make stronger connections and greater social impact.
